5 reasons to get permanent residence in Cyprus

The Cypriot law allows wealthy foreigners to become permanent residents by investing at least €300,000 in real estate, units of investment funds or securities of local companies. An investor can obtain permanent residency with a family, including a spouse, children under 25 and spouses' parents.

    Residency for life

    Permanent residence is a life-long status; thus, you don’t have to extend it like a residence permit. Children under 18 become permanent residents with the investor, and newborns inherit the status.

    Citizenship in 5 years

    If permanent residence is maintained for five years, its holder can apply for a passport. Cyprus allows dual citizenship, and the country’s passport provides visa-free entry to 178 states and territories.

    Tax optimisation

    An investor can start a business or open a branch of an international company in Cyprus. The corporate tax will be levied at the lowest rate in the EU — 12,5%.

    Access to European banks

    A Cypriot permanent resident can open accounts, keep savings, take out loans and cut transactional costs by using the services of European banks.

All ways to obtain Cyprus citizenship


All ways to obtain Cyprus citizenship

There used to be four ways a foreigner could become a Cypriot citizen: descent, marriage, naturalisation, and investment. However, Cyprus citizenship by investment is no longer available as a direct path to the country’s passport: the CBI program was closed in 2020.Naturalisation based on legal residing is the most common way to get a Cyprus passport. To qualify, a foreigner must accumulate a total stay of 7 years, or 2556 days. But some options cut the term to 5 years, including obtaining permanent residence by investment.
